FARMERS NOT ON I
PRO RATA BASIS
i
War Finance Corporation Seeks
to Correct False Im
pression.
EXPLAINS LOAN UNDER LAW
Much Confusion Created by Some
Banks and Individuals Requesting
Their Share of Billion Dollar
Agricultural Credit.
Washington.— V statement issued by
the War Finance Corporation seeks to I
correct impressions which appear to
have spread that government funds
are available for distribution to farm
ers on a pro rata basis.
“Much confusion lias been created by
misleading published reports indicating
that the War Finance Corporation has
a fund for distribution on some pro
rata basis among farmers and banks
financing farmers,” says the statement.
“As a result, the corpo -ation is receiv
ing applications from some banks and
individuals requesting ‘their share of
the billion-dollar agricultural credit.’
“The corporation is authorized under
Sections 21 and 22 to make advances
for export purposes, and under Section
24 to make advance to banks, bankers
or trust companies, or to co-operative
associations of producers which have
made loans for agricultural or live
stock purposes.
“These advances are -o be made
upon the terms and conditions stipulat
ed in the law, and their aggregate re
maining unpaid may at no time exceed
$1,0C0,000.000. The corporation, of
course, has not made any allocation of
funds among sections or Institutions
and it has not authority to do so.
“Each application is considered on
Its merits in accordance with the pow
ers conferred by the War Finance Cor
poration Act, as amended. For those
reasons applications for 'a share’ of
the ‘corporation’ funds, based upon
some supposed allotment, serve no use
ful purpose and only tend needlessly
to Increase the corporation's corres
pondence. The corporation lias an
nounced the channels through which
applications should be made and pro
vided forms, which are designed to
make the procedure as simple as pos
sible. Applicants should familiarize
themselves with the corporation’s cir
culars, which have been sent to farm
ing organizations and banks and trust
companies in the agricultural and live
stock sections of tlie country. Copies
also are obtainable from the War
Finance Corporation, at Washington.
In addition to the agricultural loan
agencies previously announced by the
War Finance Corporation, the follow
ing committees have been appointed >
to receive applications from banks in
their respective districts for loans un
der the recently enacted section 24
of the War Finance Corporation Act. j
and to make recommendations as to |
these loans to the War Finance Cor
poration :
Headquarters at Montgomery;
Henry M. Hobble, chairman; H. T.
Bartlett and A. M. Baldwin, Montgom
ery, Ala.; E. C. Melvin, Selma, Ala.;

J. Sheehan, of Winnemucca, Nev.,
has been added to San Francisco head
quarters to fill the vacancy.
In the case of banks located in dis

have not been established, applications
should lie addressed- directly to the !
corporation at Washington for the
present.

GERSANS^OfOi^

Ships of Neutral Nation
During World War.
Kiel. —In a solemn act of atone
ment Germany gave satisfaction to Ar- j

Moune Protegido and Tore.
Dr. Luis B. Molina. Minister for Ar

ously received on board the battleship

Minister Molina and Ids party left

| while the Argentine flag was run up :
;to the foretop of tlie Hanover,
i Both the Toro and the Monte Pro- j
| tegido were sunk in 191 < by German
' submarines. The sending to the hot-
I tom of the two vessels created great j
Indignation in Argentina. Germany
paid indemnities i r the sinkings.
A representative of the German gov
ernment. addressing Dr. Molina on
board the battleship, recalled that Ger
many, at the time of the sinkings, had
informed Argentina that- the “mis
haps” had occurred through no lack
of respect for the flag of a friendly
country which all Germans honored.
The first opportunity, he added, now
was being taken to salute the Argen
tine flag, and the obligation was being
discharged with all the more pleasure,
since it gave satisfaction to a na
tion which, until the end of the war,
did not swerve in maintaining full neu
trality.

IRISH DISORDERS

“Peace Wreckers” Again at
Work, Is Word From Dublin
“Authority” on Situation.
CORK BLACK AND TANS BUSY
Bombs Hurled in Belfast Outbreak, j
Four Killed and 37 Wounded—Shots j
Hit Children on Street —Brutality
Charged at Spike Island.
London. —Disturbing reports of new !
i provocative acts alleged to have been |
} made by Black and Tans in Cork and ;
j elsewhere are causing apprehension |
among those hopeful of a settlement
| o£ the Irish situation.
According to Cork dispatches civil
ian members of the Republican police
| were roughly treated by British police
patrols. Developments in the intern
ment camp at Spike Island, where prls
i oners are reported to be carrying out
, reprisals for alleged rough usage on j
i the part of the guards, and the week- |
end developments in Belfast, where
I rioting continues unabated, add to the
1 disquietude.
; In the light of these occurrences slg
; nificance Is attached to a statement
i made in Dublin by “Irish authority on
i the government side" that “peace
j wreckers” are again at work.
Several members of the British !
i cabinet, among whom Premier Lloyd |
i George's reply to the latest communi
i cation of Eainon De Valera is said to
i be going round, have not yet conveyed j
j their views to the premier and it is j
! regarded as not unlikely the premier's
| note will for several days not be ready
1 for despatch to Dublin.
No intimation has been vouchsafed
as to the probable terras of the note,
but opinion both In England and Ire
alnd seems to be hopeful that it will
be couched so as to accommodate the
position of the Sinn Fein lenders and
enable them to come into another con
j ference.
Belfast. —Four persons were killed
by bombs hurled during the fighting be
tween rangemen and Sinn Feiners. At
least fifty-seven persons were injured.
! Several have also been killed and
i wounded by bullets during the rioting,
| which lias broken out at intervals dur
j ing the last three days.
The first bomb was burled early in
■ the evening in Seaford street, East
I Belfast. Troops with machine guns
were attempting to dislodge snipers. A
crowd of men. women and children
gathered. Suddenly a bomb with fuse
lighted was hurled into the crowd. It
failed to explode. As the crowd scat
tered a second bomb dropped and burst
with devastating effects. Dead, dying
and wounded lay upon the streets. Am
bulances rushed fifty-two injured to the
hospital. A large number of the vic
tims were women and children.
New crowds gathered about the
scene of the bombing. They refused to
disperse and the police and soldiers
fired upon them. A girl was seriously
i wouuded.
A short time later another bomb was
thrown in the York road area, wound
ing five persons.
More troops a rived here. The mili
tary is patrolling ail the streets in
the riot zone, but sporadic fighting
continues. A woman was shot by
snipers in Little Georges street. Two
fifteen-year-old children, playing in
Crumlin road, were bit by bullets.
Almost under the eyes of the police,
a band of rioters set fire to a grocery
store in Middlepatb street, and at
tempted to loot its stock cf liquor.
Along woodstock road other mobs
' attempted to loot liquor establlsh
i ments. but were dispersed by the po
i lice. Among the rioters arrested was a
1 special constable, who is accused of
j firing on the police.
! Belfast.—Parties of armed anl
i masked men raided the homes of J.
j Whittaker, general manager of the
j Castlecomer - Kilkenny coal mines,
i 1 where a strike is in progress, and J.
Hargreaves, manager of the mines.
Both Whittaker and Hargreaves were
